Hand of Moses; you
wrote the Torah.
code (already posted a while back, but after checking it again I noticed
I made a little grammatical error so I repost it and since I think it
is important :-)) to support the (biblical) view that Moses wrote the
Torah contrary to the claims of the "Documentary Hypothesis".
I used the 10 letters expression "Moses wrote the Torah" and
found it in the Torah only once (and nowhere else in the Tanach) using
a wrapped text although CodeFinder indicated it was expected to appear
0 times. Upon checking this expression for extensions I noticed it was
preceded by the term "hand" and could now read "hand
of Moses you read the Torah. Moses in the code shares the same letter
(heh) with a literal mention of his name (see attached screenshot).
The Bible itself asserts very painly Moses is the human author of Torah
by using 22 times (15 in the OT and 7 in the NT) the expression "Torah
(or law) of Moses", and this term obviously refers to the first
five books according to Jesus Himself:
Luke 24:44: "Now He said to them, "these are My words which
I spoke to you, while I was still with you, that everything written
about Me in the Torah of Moses and the Prophets and the Psalms must
be fulfilled." (the Jewish canon of the OT is composed of 3 main
parts indicated by the acronym "TaNaKH" (Torah-Nevi'im (or
"Prophets")-Ketuvim (or "Writings")).
In the Torah itself one can find many instances, scattered through the
book, where it is asserted "Moses wrote", like for instance
Exodus 24:4: "And Moses wrote all the words of the LORD, and rose
up early in the morning, and builded an altar under the hill, and twelve
pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel."
31:9: "And Moses wrote this law, and delivered it unto the priests
the sons of Levi, which bare the ark of the covenant of the LORD, and
unto all the elders of Israel."
Luke and Paul (who were all Jews) also acknowledged this fact (see Acts
13:39, Acts 15:5, Acts 28:23, 1Corinthians 9:9).
The last verses of Deuteronomy recounting Moses' death were obviously
written by someone else though (Joshua maybe?). The book of Genesis
was also probably written using already existing documents (see for
instance Genesis 5:1 where the author seems to quote from a "scroll
(or book) of the generations of Adam").
The Torah also bears its human author's numerical signature (as was
shown by people like Panin and the Israeli researchers) and it is not
the one one can find in the books attributed to Jeremiah and all the
other human authors of the Tanach.
The Jewish and Christian traditions have always asserted the same thing.
And finally, well over 20 years ago now some extensive computer studies
have shown very clearly the Torah was written by a single author with
some strong supernatural help indeed:
"...some studies have showed literary consistency throughout the
Pentateuch, such as a 1980 computer study at Hebrew University in Israel
which concluded that the Pentateuch was most likely written by a single
remember. com/vitals/ Biblical_ Criticism.htm
Computer agrees: Genesis had only one author
The following quote comes from Omni magazine of August 1982:
"...After feeding the 20,000 Hebrew words of Genesis into a computer
at Technion University in Israel, researchers found many sentences that
ended in verbs and numerous words of six characters or more. Because
these idiosyncratic patterns appear again and again, says project director
Yehuda Radday, it seems likely that a sole author was responsible. Their
exhaustive computer analysis conducted in Israel suggested an 82 percent
probability that the book has just one author..."
